Hey Everyone what do you think of this screen? An Elite 150 inches cinewhite with 1.1 gain for 2.35:1 set-up..

http://www.amazon.com/Elite-Screens-R158WH1-WIDE-ezFrame-Projection/dp/B001EH6PU2/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1360731530&sr=1-2&keywords=2.35+1+fixed+screen+1.4+gain

I'll be pairing this screen with the Sony VW95es projector (or save some cash and get the panasonic ae8000) will be setup in a 17w 25L 10F ceiling.. I'm calculating dark walls (slate grey) and black ceiling.. controlled lighting.. Any help is appreciated,,

Hello DrZaus...I have this very screen (in a batcave similar dimensions) and I'm running it on a benq w1070 and I had initally ran it on a viewsonic pro8200. Both PJs had 2000 lumens and relatively low contrast ratios 4000:1 and 10000:1, so I'm really sure that either of the PJs you're looking at will work just fine. The viewsonic was 18ft back in my room and the benq is about 16ft back from the screen wall. The screen, is really well made and my movies look great! The only problem I had was hot spotting and I'm currently working with Elite to get it fixed.

Not yet...I'm gonna have to take the screen apart to get the serial number. I will probably tackle that over the weekend. I tried to get them to process my claim without it, but they would not budge. In all honestly I know they will take of it, I just don't feel like I should have to take my screen off the wall and apart in order to get this taken care of.

That is sad on elite's part, to pay top dollar and not send a replacement screen and return your current one.. I guess pictures are not enough... that is crazy to pull it all apart.. I'm almost sure I will probably go with the Carada Criterion.. I can't stand to re-ship this type.. its a pain in the @$$..

Are they "areas" of brightness? Or vertical lines from where the material might have been polished from being rolled up....

Yes it is DrZaus! I was so glad they changed their minds about the serial number policy. So, they are going to send me some new screen material...I may try and install it myself this time around, it's a fixed frame...so it shouldn't be too hard!

I know the feeling....so many options. The picture quality is GREAT! My PJ has a lot of calibrated lumens, so the picture is really bright. So, if you planned on a large screen with that PJ...I would ask around on the Sony fourms to see if anyone is running a 120"+ screen with that projector. Maybe even one of the high power screens?

I decided to move up to the Da-Lite HP 166" @ 235:1.. smile.gif
